Here is my ghetto solution for heavy cards, can you see it?
You use the power cables as cables for bridges...
even is heavy must not bend !!! Off course if you like to play with it and touch ( accidentally ) it will blend !
I would prabably do something like that too if I had a problem; but for those not mechanically inclined that could be tough. (No offense at anybody not mechanically inclined)
Your case is so Clean!! And color coordinated! and then bam, blue ram lol
Sorry is that a question? I fashioned a fishing line from the cards back plate to my top radiator which keeps this beast from bending and putting pressure on the pci-e slot.
Hahahaha No specific reasons.
I used that stuffing method just to make sure the tape (or double tape) sticks properly. It's kinda hard to stick something to an empty pipe.
Ah I see.It just sounded like it had some important purpose lol
$15 for the PC Power Jack and it's only 6" tall max? Their video of it claims that is enough for most full size case, BS. My full size Antec tower measures closer to 8" from the bottom of the case to the underside of my GPU.
If you feel like splurging some cash, buy a Silverstone case that has a 90 degree rotated mobo tray. That's what I did, although i was looking for a new case anyway but this just helped me decide on a case.
Here is what I mean. It really helped for me with my 580 SOC. As there is no backplate or reinforcement on the SOC card, it drooped like your card did in a normal case.
Also the fishing line works as well (worked for me), it just looked a bit weird for me and I was afraid of forgetting it was there and bumping it by accident.
very informative, thanks, but I don't know if I can do it or not, I'm afraid that I'll damage the card
nice setup, I envy you "just kidding....or am I"?, will try to do something like that, thanks.
thanks for your suggestion, but I'm not in the mood for buying a new case,
I will try the paper toilet \ pvc tube idea for a starter, again... thank you very much guys for your help and suggestions, I really really appreciate it , you r the best .
@THE_EGG: Your av is frickin awesome! Now that is one smart car
Gitrdone. Duct Tape!
ouch thats a bad bend, use pipe, or toilet roll cardboard, i think i saw that in the ghetto mods
I used to have the triple slot 6950 DirectCUII and that bent like crazy in my case, much like the OP's problem, never encountered any issue with the card as a result though. I'm not sure mine was caused by motherboard alignment issues though, just poor PCB support on the card itself. I like the look of that Power Jack that was recommended earlier in the thread!
OH shiii That's pretty f'en awesome
Make a clear plexiglass support bracket.
